Modeling of optical devices: teaching modern optics to electrical engineers
Author(s): Otto Schwelb

Paper Abstract

An outline is presented for a program to teach the modelling of optical components such as couplers, filters, resonators, interferometers, etc. to senior electrical engineering students. The program exploits the student’s background in linear algebra, circuit analysis and transmission line theory. It is designed to complement an elective course in microwave engineering. Numerous simulation examples associated with optical communication, measurement and sensing provide the experimental environment.
